2010 Great American BBQ Tour Partners Announced

February 3, 2010
The smell of burning charcoal is in the air; the tangy taste of barbeque sauce is on everyone's lips; the sounds of "BAAAAR-BEEEE-QUUUUUUUE" can be heard from miles around. That's right, it's time for the KCBS Great American BBQ Tour!

This year, we're proud to announce that Kingsford Charcoal, Scott Shop Towels and Weber Seasonings will be returning as partners of the tour.  Making their debut as tour partners this year are KC Masterpiece and Master of Mixes. Good-One Smokers/Grills will also be returning as the smoker of the tour, while GrillGrates joins them as the tour's grilling accessory.

"We're thrilled about adding these new partners to the tour," said Carolyn Wells, KCBS executive director. "Along with our partners from last year, their participation in the Great American BBQ Tour will make this year's edition even more exciting."
